This distinctive attached village property enjoys a central location within walking distance of the village amenities.
The property is approached from the rear via a glazed door leading to an exceptionally attractive and inviting reception hall which has a fully vaulted glazed atrium, attractive open tread stairs leading to a half landing with gothic features to include wrought iron railing and finial posts. The reception hall has a tiled floor and a 'Morso' gas stove and a square arch leading to a fully tiled wet room with a louvre door accessing the boiler cupboard. The half landing gives fabulous views across open greensward via the glazed atrium and a panelled and glazed door lead through to the kitchen/breakfast room.
A blue enamel gas fired Aga provides a focal point which is flanked by a range of handmade pine units, large Belfast sink set within the work surface, integral microwave and an electric induction hob. Large sash windows give views to the Westerly elevation and the room is distinctly segregated into two areas with the breakfast area having oak flooring, and another sash window giving views to the rear and stairs rising to the first floor.
A four panelled pine door leads to the principal reception room which benefits from 9ft ceilings and a large fireplace with inset wood burning stove providing a focal point with a semi-circular brick hearth. There are large sash windows giving views to Queen Street and a further glazed and panelled door giving access to the street. Further period detail includes deep moulded skirting boards and architraves.
The stairs rise to a central landing on the first floor with the principal bedroom situated to the front elevation of the property which once more benefits from impressive 9ft ceiling heights and has a large sash window giving roofline village views. There is a particularly impressive slate fire surround with decorative inlay tiles and a slate hearth. The second bedroom is also situated to the front elevation of the property and benefits from the same fine period features with a large sash window, deep moulded skirting boards and attractive original panelled pine doors leading to a large built-in wardrobe. The third bedroom is situated to the rear of the property and is currently used as a study and benefits from a range of built-in bookcases which flank an ornate cast iron fire surround. This rooms also takes in fine views of the village with woodland to the rear.
The bedrooms are all served by a spacious and well appointed family bath/shower room with a freestanding oval ended bath, matching white suite, marble tiled floor and a fully tiled shower cubicle. The observatory is situated on the second floor and can be reached via a narrow staircase and this provides a wonderful viewing area via the glazed North-Westerly elevation and provides access to the roof.
From the reception hall a particularly impressive three chamber basement can be accessed which is currently used as workspace but this would readily provide ancillary accommodation (subject to the necessary consents) and greatly enhance the space that is already on offer.
The property is approached from Queen Street and Church Lane with an extensive area of parking providing space for numerous vehicles which is accessed via a shared pavioured drive leading to the attached garage/workshop. The area of parking is flanked by an attractive mellow red brick wall to one side beyond which is trellis and an arch topped gate giving access to the garden.
The garden is an absolute delight and has a large circular brick terrace providing an entertaining area which is flanked by a mellow brick wall and specimen tress to provide shade. Beyond this are large expanses of lawn which are interspersed with a variety of shrubs and trees which provide year round interest and a focal point. There is an impressive eucalyptus tree to the Southerly boundary adjacent to which are attractive pollarded beech trees which provide privacy. To the bottom of the garden is a sunken terrace adjacent to an ornamental pond from which magnificent views of the parish church can be taken.
The property benefits from solar panels which are on the high feed in tariff and provide the vendor with a small income.
There are roller shutters fitted to the sash windows on the Westerly elevation of the property.
As mentioned the basement would provide further accommodation if required subject to the necessary consents.

The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a European Union initiative introduced as part of the drive to improve energy efficiency across the EU member countries.
An EPC indicates the energy efficiency of a building fabric and the installed heating, ventilation, cooling and lighting systems. However, it does not take into account how the present occupier uses these systems
Sorry, we don't currently have an EPC for this property
